It's really a lovely event, and for any artist or those appreciative of craft, I blog yet again, Brandon, Vt.'s first weekend of Art in the Snow. The small town of Brandon, Vt., a town that folk artist Warren Kimble calls home, opens up their 20+ artist studios and galleries throughout town this weekend, Jan. 24-25.
Like you'd expect from a small town in Vermont, locals put forth much effort to support the growing and active arts community. What makes Brandon particularly special is the variety of wares to suit many tastes and budgets. You can find fabric and folk artists, potters, painters, sculptors, jewelers and those with a lathe in hand. The entire town gets involved as local merchants, inns, restaurants, and B&B's offer specials during Open Studio Weekends.
If you ski or are a winter sports fanatic, make Brandon a stop along the way this weekend, or Feb.28-March 1 and March 28-29, Art in the Snow's second and third Open Studio weekends. For more info, check out their site, or call The Brandon Artists Guild at 1-802-247-4956.
